Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month!

Drinking too much alcohol can lead to health problems, including alcohol poisoning, hangovers, and an increased risk of heart disease. This April, during Alcohol Awareness Month, Kids Without Stuff encourages you to take this time to educate yourself and your loved ones about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

To spread the word and prevent alcohol abuse, Kids Without Stuff is joining other organizations across the country to honor Alcohol Awareness Month to prevent alcohol abuse in our community.

If you are drinking too much, you can improve your health by cutting back or quitting. Keep track of how much you drink, avoid places where overdrinking occurs, and find new ways to deal with stress. If you are concerned about someone else’s drinking, offer to help.
